I Am 5 Days Post Op from a Rib Revision. When Will The Swelling Subside?
I just got cast off and while the tip was derotated well and nostrils look great, my nose looks like a long molded chunk of playdoh stuck onto my face. I did not have grafts on my bridge, just around nostrils and columnella, though I did have my nasal bones infractured. It is very disconcerting to look like an alien even though I know swelling is partly to blame. Is it normal to look like this and for how long? My doc does not want me to ice anymore, what else can I do to speed healing?
